United States of America – Stuck in Customs

Shut Down in Washington

Daily Photo – Shut Down in Washington

The last time I was in Washington DC was kind of weird. First it was during a government shutdown, so my plan to visit the Smithsonian was foiled… and then a snowstorm blew in and it got even quieter as most people stayed indoors keeping warm. There were a few brave souls who remained outdoors to have some snow based fun though…

California?

Daily Photo – California?

This photo is tagged “california”, so I have to assume that’s where I took it… but I have no recollection of doing so… and therefore, no idea where in California it is. If it’s even there. Tag your photo’s properly people. It will help you later!

Temple of Psychedelic Awakening, Burning Man

Daily Photo – Temple of Psychedelic Awakening, Burning Man

Every year Burning Man has a different “temple” that represents a wide range of spiritual groundings. While not the official temple, this “Totem of Confessions” held some of Timothy Leary’s ashes that Susan Sarandon brought along. I think she just travels with lots of ashes of famous pyshconauts. I’m not sure. This is a gothic cathedral-style piece plastered in Kafkaesque photo collages of animals and people inside. Tons of people went inside the 60-foot high structure, which had a confession booth and eerie peephole rooms. In the right context, psychedelics can give people direct access to the divine in the universe and inside of themselves, so these are truly gifts to humanity to help spread consciousness and love.

The Water Wall

Daily Photo – The Water Wall

I was looking through my portfolio for a project and stumbled across this image which I don’t think I’ve ever shared on the blog. Somehow it slipped through the cracks! Speaking of projects, check back tomorrow for something new!

Up and Away. USA.

Daily Photo – Up and Away. USA.

I was lucky enough to be invited by NASA to the final few launches of the Space Shuttle. Wow that really was one of the most impressive things I’ve ever witnessed. What really surprised me is when the wall of sound hit me and how it shook my skeleton like an earthquake.

Pacific Coast Highway. USA.

Daily Photo – Pacific Coast Highway. USA.

5:30 AM. Alarm goes off. It’s always painful. People that say they are “morning people” — I think they are lying. But, when in a beautiful place like here along the Pacific Coast Highway in California, I always force myself, military style, to pop out of bed. On this occasion, my room had a little fireplace and everything which made it even harder to get out of bed! After I got downstairs, I started a little hike to get a good vantage of the coast and the sunrise.

The Grand Prism. USA.

Daily Photo – The Grand Prism. USA.

This place in Yellowstone is awe-inspiring and huge. Want to know how huge? Look at those people standing there on the boardwalk towards the top. To get this angle, I had to walk up an uncharted hill/mountain thing that looked a lot easier on Google Maps to ascend than in reality.

Sunrise Florida. USA

Daily Photo – Sunrise Florida. USA

Maybe I’ve been lucky, but every sunrise I’ve seen on the east coast of Florida has been absolutely beautiful. Even on days when it’s quite cloudy, the sun somehow manages to pop through and make the whole scene epic. Besides that, nothing beats a morning walk on the beach to clear your head and get you ready for the day! 🙂

Secret Beach. USA.

Daily Photo –

This spot is well known to people that photograph the Big Sur region a lot, but it remained unknown to me for a very long time! Even though I have shot in the Big Sur area many times, this spot always eluded me. So, when I parked and started the short walk, you can imagine how excited I was to find such a beautiful scene right under my nose!

Glacial Power

Daily Photo – Glacial Power

This is one of the largest pieces I have ever made; the giant TIFF is about 21,000 pixels across. I shot it one cool and crisp morning at Glacier National Park in this crystal-clear lake that is fed by glacial runoff. It is comprised of 90 different photos that took a small eternity to mix into an epic HDR. I do huge prints for collectors around the world, and some are printed up to 3 meters across, so this is a technique I’ve come to enjoy.
